Seaweed Luxury Villa with its 270 degree views of the ocean becomes the latest member of Jakes' villa collection which currently includes Calabash Bay Villa (and Calabash Cottage) on the doorstep of Jakes, and Hope House in the picturesque locale of Old Wharf, ten minutes from Jakes proper and which Seaweed Luxury Villa will also call home.
Painted in alluring hues of turquoises and sea greens to evoke the surrounding Caribbean Sea and with a choice of hiring the whole acre-and-a-half property - a four bedroom main villa and two bedroom sister villa - or just one of each, Seaweed is pioneering a new standard of luxury living with an eco-conscience on Jamaica's south coast.
Interior Design & Style
An organically motivated design of four- and two- bedroom beach villas, the interiors of Seaweed feature Caribbean cool colours with dark woods and organic furnishings locally made by Island Art Jamaica. Jakes' bohemian chic signature style of mosaic tiles, shell adornments and coloured bottles worked into walls is also evident throughout.
Spanning five guestrooms - plus a sixth basement games room/bedroom inclusive of four queen size beds, two pull out sofas, full bathroom with shower, large screen TV, pool table and bar - over two buildings, each room, with its ensuite bathroom - incorporating an outdoor shower or deep bathtub and a private veranda facing the ocean - is a serene space for relaxation after a "hard day at the beach."
A private gym with steam shower overlooking the ocean will provide inspirational views whilst guests work out, while a two-level infinity edge pool and hot tub decorated with mosaics and shellwork is available for those who prefer to remain poolside.
Of course no beachside property is complete without a barbeque and Seaweed comes up trumps with its generous outdoor grill decorated with stones and shells in swirling designs in homage to the sea nearby. Also on the site, there is an outdoor bar complete with rattan roof for al fresco entertaining, a fire pit for cosy night time gatherings and outdoor speakers are dotted about to ensure music is available at all times - an important aspect of island living.
Seaweed Luxury Villa provides kayaks, snorkelling equipment and boogie boards for sea based adventures as well as seven mountain bikes (for both adults and kids) for guests to explore the local area.
Luxury Villa Seaweed has been architecturally designed to be sympathetic to the natural environment and comprises the following eco-friendly features:
Solar hot water, provisions for wind generated power, LED lighting, day lighting, Natural and local materials, extensive use of reclaimed lumber, concrete counter tops, natural river stone, rainwater harvesting, recycling gray water to irrigation, use of local and adaptive landscaping.
Speaking about the new villa, Jakes General Manager Jason said: "We're thrilled to add the new Seaweed Luxury Villa to Jakes' offering. We love welcoming people to the South Coast of Jamaica and Seaweed Luxury Villa will both complement Jakes and provide a new standard of luxury accommodation in this region. We're delighted to be a part of it."
